More about the Prince’s Trust
The mission of Women Supporting Women is simple: to provide the right help to nurture, empower and inspire young women to build a better future for themselves.
Women Supporting Women was created at The Prince’s Trust in 2018 to help young women who face disadvantage and adversity to transform their lives. The collective is committed to raising funds so that more young women can build their confidence and skills and be supported into jobs, self-employment, education or training.
Why the Prince’s Trust?
- This year’s findings from our annual Youth Index research suggest that young women are more likely than young men to have experienced a decline in their wellbeing and to feel worried about their future prospects.
- A quarter of young women (26 per cent) say they will never recover from the emotional impact of the pandemic, compared to 19 per cent of young men1.
- A third of young women (34 per cent) don’t feel in control of their life, compared to 28 per cent of young men1.
- A study of Generation Z’s mental health from the Educational Policy Institute and The Prince’s Trust found that although Generation Z girls have similar levels of wellbeing and self-esteem as boys by the end of primary school, they then experience a sudden decline in both by age 14. Their wellbeing falls even lower towards the end of their teenage years, while their depressive symptoms increase significantly.
